Neanderthal Man's idea of a food truck was probably a wandering brontosaurus. Modern Man has BC Tacos.
Brett Chiavari's BC Tacos is the latest food truck to come truckin' on the local food scene, with a planned debut on Wednesday, May 18, at a food truck rally at the Ed Morse Auto Mall in Sunrise. Chiavari, whose father, Rick, is exec chef at Turnberry Ocean Colony in Sunny Isles Beach, says he's hoping to bring some of Miami's food-truck energy to Broward, with a regular lunchtime gig in Fort Lauderdale, at Cypress Creek and Powerline roads.
BC's tacos are less authentic Mexican than its namesake's eclectic take on everyone's favorite thing to do with a tortilla. They are more or less standard steak, chicken, and seafood tacos, along with such quirkier variations as fried avocado, Buffalo mahi, chicken caesar, pulled pork, and bacon cheeseburger.
The specialty, though, is the gut-busting Caveman Taco, a burger
patty, shredded beef, and braised short rib all sandwiched between two
halves of a crispy corn tortilla, then wrapped in a flour tortilla with
cheddar cheese and lettuce. There's also a choice of four house-made
salsas, chips, taco lettuce bowls, and even a s'mores taco.
though Chiavari's tacos may bust your gut, they won't bust your wallet,
with regular tacos priced at $3 and specialty tacos at a princely $4.
The BC website isn't up yet, but if you want to check out the menu and
the really cool truck, they're on Facebook here.
